Some hard to find stuff here. Also some hard to find **stereo** stuff here. If you want to hear the flawless stereo version of Born To Late, this is the CD you want. If you want to hear Good Timin' in stereo, this is the CD you want. A note on the back of the CD states:
All tracks AAD, digitally transferred from original analog master tapes by Fred Meyer at Polygram Studios."
The sound quality does indeed sound like these came from the master tapes. I don't believe you will ever hear these songs sound better. At the time of this posting, Amazon did not have a track listing, here it is:
(1) The House Of Blue Lights - Chuck Miller (mono)
(2) Confidential - Sonny Knight (mono)
(3) A Teenager's Romance - Ricky Nelson (mono)
(4) You're My One And Only Love - Ricky Nelson (mono)
(5) Wishing For Your Love - The Voxpoppers (mono)
(6) (It's Been A Long Time) Pretty - Baby Gino & Gina (mono)
(7) One Summer Night - The Danleers (mono)
(8) Summertime, Summertime - The Jamies (stereo)
(9) Born Too Late - The Poni Tails (stereo)
(10) Big Bopper's Wedding - The Bopper (mono)
(11) Sorry (I Ran All The Way Home) - The Impalas (stereo)
(12) Broken-Hearted Melody - Sarah Vaughan (stereo)
(13) Teen Angel - Mark Denning (stereo)
(14) Lonely Blue Boy - Conway Twitty (stereo)
(15) Handy Man - Jimmy Jones (mono)
(16) Good Timin' - Jimmy Jones (stereo)

(17) Cradle Of Love - Johnny Preston (mono)
(18) Image Of A Girl - The Safaris (mono)
(19) Ta Ta - Clyde McPhatter (stereo)
(20) Fools Rush In (Where Angels Fear To Tread) - Brook Benton (stereo)

Here, Eric Records, the big little reissue company, fires the opening salvo in its "Hard To Find 45's..." series of compilation CD's. This first volume presents titles from 1955 through 1960 and really tickles the musical memories of listeners of early American rock and roll ditties.

While not all these titles may at first seem to qualify as "hard-to-find", finding even these popular ones in the sound quality presented here is truly the "hard-to-find" part. Beyond these more familiar tracks, fitting the hard-to-find-at-all bill are such tunes as Chuck Miller's "House Of Blue Lights", the Voxpoppers' "Wishing For Your Love" and "It's Been A Long Time Pretty Baby" by Gino and Gina.

Since several of these tracks are pre-stereo (pre-'58) era, they by necessity appear in mono but many of the later ones (tracks 8,9,11-14,16,19-21) jump out in wide, dynamic stereo. Completing the package are interesting liner notes on each of the included tracks.

Eric comes out with both barrels firing with this new series and shows the majors how it should be done. Top-of-the-line quality here for fans of the music from America's love affair with rock and roll in its infancy.

This first in Bill Buster's series of hard-to-find 45s on CD sets the tone for all that follow on Eric by combining a mix of reasonably-easy-to-locate selections with some that take a bit of digging, and others that pop out at you in the "at last" category.

It also establishes a much-appreciated regular gift of comprehensive liner notes, in this instance written by Fred Bronson, author of The Billboard Book Of Number One Hits and Billboard's Hottest Hot 100 Hits, as well as the "Chart Beat" column in Billboard Magazine.

In Volume 1, covering the period 1955-1960, the ones that might take some digging include Ricky Nelson's You're My One And Only Love, [It's Been A Long Time] Pretty Baby by Gino & Gina, and both of Jimmy Jones' big hits - Handy Man and Good Timin'.

In my estimation, the real eye-poppers are Confidential by Sonny Knight, Wishing For Your Love by The Voxpoppers, The Danleers' One Summer Night, Ta Ta by Clyde McPhatter, and especially Corinna, Corinna by Ray Peterson. You may THINK you've discovered that on some other compilation, but believe me, you should check it out carefully because, if any one song has been re-recorded to death, Corinna, Corinna is the one. Here you KNOW it's the original version which hit # 9 in 1960.

The sound quality is excellent.

I do not have anything to add to the positive reviews. The entire series is indeed a goldmine!
Go to google.com and/or gemm.com. OR to ericrecords and there you will find it possible to buy this one!
Enjoy!

" Hey Jimmy have you heard the latest Sonny Knight 45, Confidential, its all slow, smooth, and girl close hold-able, and maybe even kissable, " yelled Sammy Rizzo across the seventh period study hall classroom. " Christ, Sammy Whammy, where do you come up with those words, 'close hold-able,' what does that mean, you're poking her," yelled Jimmy, Jimmy Cullen, back at his old friend. Just then Miss Wilmot, that old bitch thought Sammy, came into the room signaling lock-down, prison lock-down and that there would be no more talking, no more talking, period, except of course for the flurry, the massive flurry of notes, between boys and girls, girls and girls, boys and their confederates, boy or girl. Confederates like Sammy Rizzo and Jimmy Cullen, who from appearances would seem like an unlikely pair, except they had been friends, well, since way back in old Clintonville Elementary School days.

Jimmy, long, long and slender, wiry, sneaky wiry if you decided that he was an easy target in a hard fistfight, although all bets were off if you decided on switchblades, knives that every boy, every smart boy, carried, carried concealed on his person somewhere, and let's just leave it at that. Carrying just in case he caught trouble at school in some dark back hall, or more likely, found himself on some foreign corner, some corner boy corner without his boys, and some king hell corner boy king decided he didn't like your looks, or just didn't like the idea of you on his corner. And Jimmy also had a handsome face set off by deep-blue eyes, a cross between Paul Newman movie star glamour eyes and the steel-blue eyes of "Stacks McGee," a serial killer now waiting to fry up in the death row of the state pen, if the appeals process ever ended.
